Operators, the story on Pages 16-17 of  PS 798 (May 19) provided info for A/C belts due to confusion with the addition of a new A/C tensioner system.

There was no requirement to upgrade the old tensioner system to the new one. However, TM 9-2320-333-23&P (Jun 19) only shows NSNs for the upgraded A/C tensioner system. The old A/C tensioner system NSNs aren’t in the TM.

Here’s a list of the old and new A/C tensioner systems parts. Make sure you order the correct A/C belt because the new A/C tensioner system uses a longer belt.

Bolt 5306-01-371-7162 5305-01-372-4712 1
